This revision of a popular text discusses the behavior, analysis, and design of prestressed concrete structures. Changes in the Second Edition include a new emphasis on partially prestressed concrete members, flexural strength calculations, deflection calculations, crack width calculations, along with new information on high strength materials, and more. Develops an understanding of design methods used in practice and familiarity with the important provisions of the governing 1983 Building Code of the American Concrete Institute. Balance of theory and practice provides a clear survey of design principles. Problems at the end of every chapter illustrate concepts.
